Joel Salatin, prolific writer and owner of Polyface Farms in Virginia, will be in Masonville at Sunrise Ranch on September 13, 2013, to speak at a fund-raising event for the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund. Sponsored by the Fort Collins Chapter of the Weston A. Price Foundation and the Farm-to-Table Culinary Academy at Sunrise Ranch, this evening will include a Farm-to-Table dinner and then a talk by Joel Salatin on the topics, “Can We Feed the World?” and “What About Price?”
Joel Salatin has opened the eyes of many to the world of sustainable farming, as well as the lies and coercion of big business in changing the direction of healthy farming practices to large-scale confinement farming. Michael Pollan wrote about Salatin’s farm in The Omnivore’s Dilemma and marveled at how Salatin grows his own food…and must fight the government in order to sell it to his own neighbors who want what he has raised. Salatin has been leading the fight for consumers to have a say in what and where they get their food and how this affects our future as producers…and as consumers.
